GOP INTERNAL DOCUMENT - NOT TO BE EMAILED BEYOND CURRENT DISTRIBUTION LIST
Please see the following points on Gov. Palin's family.
* Governor Palin and her husband Todd have a loving family and their children mean everything to them. When their oldest daughter Bristol came to them with news that she was expecting a child they embraced her and gave her unconditional love and support.
* This is a very personal matter for the family. We should all respect the love they have for the child and the desire all parents would have for their children's privacy.
* The media should respect Bristol's privacy. That's always been the tradition and practice when it comes to the children of candidates.
* (If pressed) The children of candidates do not choose to run for office and be thrust into the spotlight.
